Cypress hospital to be restructured into freestanding emergency room

HCA Houston Healthcare is restructuring its Cypress Fairbanks Medical Center Hospital from a full-service facility into a freestanding emergency room. The hospital restructuring is part of a broader realignment of selected service lines at HCA Houston Healthcare's northwest Houston hospitals, according to a statement from Sean Burnett, vice president of strategic communications for HCA Houston Healthcare. The 181-bed Cypress Fairbanks hospital facility at 10655 Steepletop Drive will become part of HCA Houston Healthcare Tomball.
